According to the Surface Engineering Group at Connect/Innovate UK:
Many products, from aero engines to razor blades, use a treated surface creating cost-effective, high performance parts with a functional surface exactly where it is required.
"An update on the challenges and priorities for the UK Surface Engineering Industry", recently published by the Materials Community of the Knowledge Transfer Network, used extensive consultation with industry and leading researchers to identify key actions and issues, which included:
The importance of surface engineering and coating technologies is reflected right across the Advanced Engineering show floor from exhibitors, visitors and speaker presentations alike.
Just some of our exhibitors on board so far . . .
Recent presentations from last November’s show include:
This year’s Advanced Engineering promises to have even more coverage of surface engineering and its applications in aerospace, automotive, and other high performance manufacturing sectors. Stay tuned for updates on the website.
